Sourced from modding rule topic: http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=408233
"We see many accusations of mod theft in the modding showrooms, but most of them aren't well founded. That's why we decided to make a policy about this."
"When you think someone has stolen a mod, you have to do two things. First, you have to find evidence. Without evidence, we can't do something about it. Try to use google, for example. Only when you find something that proves that your accusation is well founded, you are allowed to report. If you found something, you have to report the topic or send a PM to someone of the modding staff. In this report, you have to give us the evidence you found. In a PM, you also have to link to the topic."
"By evidence we don't mean a link to the site. What we mean is screenshots of the mods side by side, and anything else that you feel would help the case."
"Remember: never post an accusation on the forum. There are several reasons for that. Perhaps you are wrong, then you accuses somebody who didn't commit the crime. That isn't fair, and isn't good for his reputation. Next to that, you certainly can't do anything about it, so posting is unnecessary. Finally, it only provokes a fight, which is against the GTAForums.com rules."
"We are glad that you want to help us. If you are doing it by using this policy, we will appreciate it. For us, the worst thing you can do in the modding forums, is stealing a mod. But accusing someone that didn't steal the mod, is second. Any accusation that is done on the forums, and not reported to a member of staff in the correct way. Will be ignored, only accusations reported by the correct method will be dealt with."

But his(my) mod has not been approved and put in the site by the moderator. Not even one screenshot has been uploaded. He has copied my mod description. could i take that as evidence? He has the same Username as me (1998gtasa) can I drag that to the problem?
